Maxim, tall, whimsical, and a vampire, wants to hire a curator for his art collection. Robyn, a newly minted art historian looking for a job, loves fine art and old stuff, and Maxim soon realizes she is not just perfect for the job, but also for him.

Robyn never liked prejudices against vampires, werewolves, or Fae, but the moment she starts working for a vampire, things appear less black and white, especially when she begins to fall for her new boss.

However, Testosterone is very essential. viagra sildenafil canada Men can’t maintain the toughness of the penis to receive more blood and to viagra cost in india give it a new start. Online Pharmacies from India have great track record because Indian government cialis sale has one of the strictest laws when it comes to consumer drug safety. Getting tadalafil 5mg the price ticket dismissed will not be nearly as onerous or difficult as you think that. Robyn and Maxim’s young love will have to overcome odds and odd vampires who take issue with the fact that Maxim happens to be a vampire hunter who doesn’t shy away from decapitating his own kind.

This is one of the most hilarious stories I have read in a long time. There is some action but most of novel is character development and romance. I was drawn into the plot and fell in love with all the characters.

Robyn Somerton is an art historian offered the job of her dreams, taking care of a private art collection. Her employer turns out to be a vampire, which is rather common as all the supernatural creatures don’t hide what they are. What she doesn’t expect is how handsome and funny he is. As for Maxim Vallois, he fell in love with her as soon as he met and scented her. I loved the fact that he refuses to do any paperwork and leaves it up to his son, Heath Decker. He is what is called a Dhampir, a child of a human mother and a vampire father. They can go out in sunlight, but they inherit their vampire father’s abilities.

The relationship between father and son is nice but Heath becomes exasperated with him when he makes rash decisions or does something to embarrass him. One of the funny jokes that go throughout the story is Maxim blaming himself for not getting Heath crayons when he was young, and Heath calling him an “crazy old bat”. To Heath’s surprise he actually likes Robyn and considers her one of his few friends. You could call him a work-a-holic among work-a-holics. He gets very exasperated with his father as he keeps pushes him to go on at least two dates, to get out and have some fun. Robyn is a wonderfully developed character that is one of the few people who do not hold any discrimination towards the supernatural creatures around her. I could also tell just how much she enjoys her job and was horrified by the way his collection was stored.

Besides being a handsome man with morals, Maxim is allowing Robyn to take charge of how fast their relationship goes. That said, he is desperate to claim her. I love his character as he takes nothing seriously except his feelings for both his son Robyn and his job. He is an elder vampire and has seen all sort of changes, but he just can’t take the world seriously. He is a little possessive of her and has an almost obsessive need to feed her. Part of the reason is back before he was changed, he knew true hunger and does not like to see anyone thin, and as Robyn is rather thin, he wants to fatten her up.

This is a book I would recommend to everyone that likes paranormal romance. The characters and plot are fun, and the romance is rather sweet to watch. They have an instant attraction that neither tries to resist. The love scene is sweet, and both know that they have found the person for them.

Have fun sitting back and watching the chaos happen, but you might want to be alone or others might think you are crazy for laughing so much.
